Keeping with that theme of “weekends are for local bands,” we’ve got another weekend of local-band shows. It follows a week’s worth of touring bands. Such is our lot in life, living here in Flyover Country (or in this case, drive-through country).

Tonight Dan Brennan’s band Healer headlines at fabulous O’Leaver’s. I saw their stage debut last May at Slowdown and was most entertained. In the center spot is KC band Maps for Travelers. Mint Wad Willy opens. $7, 9:30 p.m.

Speaking of local-band shows, there’s a veritable bonanza of locals playing in Benson tonight during the semi-annual OEAA Nominees Showcase. Seven venues including The Waiting Room and Reverb are participating. $10 gets you into all of them all night, starting at 8 p.m. Full line-up and schedule is here.

Tomorrow night the only show on my radar is Super Ghost and Eric in Outerspace opening for Tenderness Wilderness at Slowdown Jr. If you’re into classic emo, Super Ghost is definitely worth your time. $7, 9 p.m.

And, believe it or not, that’s all I got for this weekend. Talk about slow going. The suck part is that next weekend is blown because of Halloween.

Anyway, if I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a good one.
